    Default Linux - BaseCamp under WINE

    Hello guys,

    does anyone know how installing (and making it work) BaseCamp under linux using WINE? Up to now I have been using MapSource (it works very well under linux and I can interface my Garmin device too), but I was told that locked maps by Garmin (I have received regular upgrades on a different PC with XP) that BaseCamp can use those maps.

    Thankyou

    Both, Mapsource and BaseCamp support locked maps. I haven't tried recent BaseCamp in wine, I think the easiest way to get it under wine is to copy whole installed program directory form Windows, but I don't know if there is proper support for .NET in wine.
    Thanks, Kanopus

    I have gmapsup.img on my Device and i splitted it in *.img to install CityNavigator in MapSource. MapSource show me only a white square (i tried modifing zoom level and details but... nothing) and tell me that the map is blocked. I have the code to unblock it but i cannot do it in Linux. I was told that BaseCamp can solve this issue.

    You have to unlock the .img with gimgunlock before splitting it with Gmaptool.

    Zoom in.

    From GMT readme:
    Gmt create very simple basic map, just a minimum data to make Mapsource to see the map. This is OK for small area map but not good enough for big maps like City Navigators.You can improve preview map adding details form basemap. (How to instructions follow.)
